  1. 1. Adapt, Survive or Die - Metabolic Imbalances and the Enteric Nervous System

    Författare :Ulrikke Voss; Institutionen för experimentell medicinsk vetenskap; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; enteric nervous system; high fat diet; neuropathy; neuroplasticity; metabolic imbalance;

    Sammanfattning : Abstract: In this thesis the questions “do enteric neurons adapt to survive in conditions of obesity/type 2-diabetes (T2D) related metabolic imbalances? Or do they die?” are asked. Obese and T2D patients have high rates of gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Endogenous and treatment-induced neuroplasticity in mouse models of Parkinson's disease

    Författare :Francesco Bez; Basala gangliernas patofysiologi; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Sammanfattning : Parkinson´s disease (PD) is an age-related neurodegenerative disorder characterized by a loss of nigral dopamine (DA) neurons that project their axons to the striatum. Striatal DA depletion causes the typical motor symptoms of PD. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Neuroplasticity and neurorestoration in the treatment of Parkinson's Disease: Experimental studies in the mouse

    Författare :Veronica Francardo; Basala gangliernas patofysiologi; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Sammanfattning : Neuroplasticity is the brain´s capacity to respond to inner and outer challenges with functional and structural reorganizations. An aberrant activation of neuroplasticity pathways may contribute to the development of neurological disease. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Balance and gait in Parkinson’s disease : from perceptions to performance

    Författare :Hanna Johansson; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : The overall aim of this thesis was to explore perceptions and performance of balance and gait in people with Parkinson’s disease (PwPD), and to evaluate both the current evidence for exercise-induced neuroplasticity and the feasibility of investigating exercise-induced neuroplastic changes among PwPD. This thesis includes four papers of different designs; a qualitative interview study (paper I), a systematic review and meta-analysis (paper II), a pilot RCT (paper III) and a crosssectional study (paper IV).

  5. 5. Perception of Computer Games in Non-Gaming Contexts

    Författare :Mats Wiklund; Love Ekenberg; Jakob Palme; Staffan Björk; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Computer games; Games; Learning; Communication; Computer and systems science; Data- och systemvetenskap; Computer and Systems Sciences; data- och systemvetenskap;

    Sammanfattning : As computer games have evolved from single-player entities to complex, highly communicative on-line game worlds, their potential to fill different roles in society has grown. One aspect of this change is that various forms of computer mediated communication may become increasingly associated with games in various ways. LÄS MER
